I have a Honda, so it might be slightly different, however best to start at the top, unwind by finger or pliers the little knobs that help adjust cable tension on the inner end of your clutch lever, so that the open slots line up. With a little wiggle you should be able to lift the cable out of the slot.

The bottom end will be roughly similar, but you may need some slack to get it out so you may need to pull some of the cable through first.

Usually the cable outer sheath is held to the frame and other things by various clips or ties, make sure you remember the way the cable goes so when you put it back in you can do everything the same.

You should now be able to reverse your operation by popping in the bottom part, laying the cable right and then slip the top in again, make sure the tighten the knobs at the top for how you like your clutch to feel.

Hi, Porl and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.

Clutch cable leaks

You need a new cable. It points downward from the primary cover which contains oil, and some of it sits in the lower part of the cable. If it is frayed, it will leak.

If your bike is equipped with a cable operated clutch, disconnect the cable at the clutch handle and lubricate it with oil. There's also a possibility that the cable has rust or is frayed internally and needs to be replaced.

Plaese i need help my bike suzuki 1100 the cluch keeps on sliping i dont no if it is assembel right please help and the carb is also not right

Check the adjustment of the cable . Ensure that the cable is not kinked or frayed as this will stop complete movement of the clutch cable . Check the quality and type of oil used in the clutch as they run in oil and will slip if the oil is incorrect quality or grade.

When i pull in the clutch and shift into gear my bike jumps and dies. it doesnt seem like the clutch is working

That definitely sounds like the clutch is shot,like it's not even there.Inspect both ends of your cable first before going to replace the clutch.Sometimes either end of the cable will fray and pop off the little bead stopper.It also could just need re-adjusting at the clutch end.If you are up around 70-80K miles,probably the clutch though.Good luck.

How do i fix my handle for the clutch cause it got very loose and it doesnt even go back up once i squeeze it, i cant even change it to gears and i tried tighten the little knob where you can loosen it or...

If you put synthetic oil in the gearbox that is the problem. Synthetics can swell the cork on the clutch friction plates causing the problem you describe. New friction plates and a change back to standard 10w40 motor oil is what will be needed.

If standard 10w40 oil is in the gearbox then it may be very dirty. If so, drain it then put in a new filter and fresh oil. Ride the bike for an hour or so using the clutch often then drain the oil and install fresh oil. This will flush out the grit that can cause the problem.

About the only other things that could be causing the problem are a badly frayed clutch cable, a badly worn clutch arm assembly (at the gearbox), a dirty clutch arm assembly, a broken spring, a clutch that has been messed with and re-assembled or adjusted incorrectly, and a bent clutch pushrod.

Gear/clutch problem

does not seem like the waterpump. is the clutch set too loose?
usually in wire based clutches, if the clutch cable is set to be too loose, or if it is frayed, and needs replacement, the bike will jump and stall.
check that.

Clutch cable

and yesterday was the first time i ever went on a bike. After a couple of hours of riding it around my neighborhood my clutch cable snapped. Im guessing the cable itself is not very expensive but i was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on how to replace it. ALso i can't figure out how to take off the seat. haha thanksSugestion 1: Get a service manual and owners manual, they would answer your questions. Now, to get the seat off, check in the trunk. The little door on the rear of the bike, I believer the xjs have wingnuts in there that hold the seat down. In terms of the clutch cable, you may need to remove the clutch lever to get the cable off that side, on the other side you probably need to remove the clutch cover on the engine (near where the chain goes into the engine) and remove the cable from there.,,,
